A unique formation, including all five of the programme’s flight test A400M next-generation airlifters, was flown by the Airbus Flight Test teams on Jun. 7, in Toulouse, France.

After the special formation flight, which did not include any particular maneuver or test, each aircraft returned to its individual activity: MSN1 performed handling quality evaluation; MSN2, wing pod hose stability tests; MSN3, engine tests; MSN4, pressurisation and oxygen tests; and MSN6, function and reliability tests.
